Craig is why...

Being a Cardiac Ready Community is so important.

THANK YOU to everyone for supporting our efforts to launch the Cardiac Ready Community Program by donating on Giving Hearts Day! Your generosity, along with a $5,000 donation match from Metro Area Ambulance Service, helped us raise $15,870! All donations will go directly toward making Bismarck-Mandan a Cardiac Ready Community. Through education, training, accessible AEDs and PulsePoint technology, community members will be ready to assist in a cardiac event outside a hospital setting, therefore increasing survivability of cardiac victims like Craig.


Employers Must Post 300A Injury/Illness Summary Until April 30
February 5, 2018 - OSHA reminds employers of their obligation to post a copy of OSHA’s Form 300A, which summarizes job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2017. Each year, between Feb. 1 and April 30, the summary must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted. Businesses with 10 or fewer employees and those in certain low-hazard industries are exempt from OSHA recordkeeping and posting requirements. Visit OSHA's Recordkeeping Rule webpage for more information on recordkeeping requirements.

New Training Opportunities Now Available!
Hot topics, hands-on training and more

Part of our vision moving into the Safety Campus was to expand our lineup and make hands-on training more accessible and affordable for our state and region. In November, we completed our first rescue course on the new training tower. Attendees provided very positive feedback, making us even more excited to launch our next set of courses!

New offerings now available through the NDSC include:

Several of these courses include interactive hands-on components utilizing the NDSC’s training tower. This 26-foot prop allows students to practice multiple scenarios in a safe and realistic environment. Not only do the students enjoy the interaction, but it creates a memorable training experience and increased retention rates.

All course details are available in the links above, or click here to view our training calendar. If you’re interested in scheduling a private course for your company, call us today at (800) 932-8890.

Safety is about People 

Marlowe Ann Regan was happy as a baby, child, and young adult. According to her dad, Tom, she was ebullient – she could walk into a room and liven up the place. She had a great, contagious laugh and a real good giggle … Tom can still hear her giggle in his head.

Tom and Patti Regan lost Marlowe, their oldest daughter, in a single-car crash in May 2006. Marlowe was 21 and worked at Sykes while living in Minot with her boyfriend, Michael. The day she died was her brother Walt’s 19th birthday. Marlowe was traveling from Minot to Bismarck to celebrate his birthday with the whole Regan family.

“We were washing Patti’s van in the driveway and we wondered why Marlowe wasn’t there yet,” Tom remembered. “It was getting kind of late and all of a sudden we saw a sheriff’s car pull up.” When Chaplain Dan Sweeney got out, Tom thought Dan was just stopping to say hello since they were friends. But then he saw a deputy sheriff was with him. “They walked up to us, and I had an inkling something was wrong. Maybe it was the look on his face. I thought…‘oh shit.’”
